God’s Inexpressible Gift: Mercies of Christ

The common definition of Mercy is, “not getting what you deserve”. But Mercy is more than that. Sometimes Mercy is not getting what you want. And sometimes God shows his Mercy by opposing us in the course of life. We may not always recognize God saying no or even opposing us as an act of his Mercy, but we should at least acknowledge the principle as one of God’s inexpressible gifts to us and thank him. As Garth Brooks sings, “I thank God for unanswered prayer.”
